This summer home has a beautiful view of Lake Memphramagog in Newport, Vermont. Susan from Stowe Craft & Design worked with the home owner to develop and implement an overall interior design concept.
Spacial planning, and flooring are part of the whole scheme. The project included industrial modern bookcases, shelving and cabinets, custom-made rugs, lighting, accessories and art.
The outdoor furniture was made out of recycled plastic, maintenance-free against wind and weather. The classic colors in Sun-brella fabrics were chosen to sit softly with existing outdoor colors of the home.
A shag rug was placed in the TV area. It is made of hand knotted various, textured wool yarns.
To compliment the industrial modern media cabinet, a coffee table and floating shelves were made from recycled I-beams and wood. All of these work well with the client's existing sectional.
The stacked box end table was created by an artist who begins with a standing tree and goes all the way to the custom finishes.
Puzzles are a favorite activity, An industrial metro shade provides the light to find those pieces. Ceramic sconces adorn the walls in otherwise darker spots.
Woven wood shades were chosen for texture, they allow light to come through but still have privacy. The rug under the puzzle table is a textured plynyl. It is easy to clean and a fun color.
An asymmetrical up-cycled lamp was hand-made from old lamp parts and velum adding a whimsical element. The Italian designed recliners feature slim styling and comfort. Luxury plank vinyl flooring was chosen for very low maintenance, moisture resistance and a fantastic wood appearance.
The grandkid's guest bedroom was decorated with hand-painted beds. A fun and comfortable swing is hung from the ceiling for a cozy reading chair.
The guest master bedroom is a quieter palate. The headboard and foot board, with their original paint, is made from old siding. Factory file cabinets were up-cycled to make nightstands. Custom tea filter paper shades fit perfectly with the industrial bases. The window shades are woven grasses with a black-out liner so guests can get as much rest as possible.
Keeping a tighter budget in the bathroom, plain white porcelain tiles with colored glass accents were placed in a simple random pattern. Recycled rubber flooring was used in the whole bathroom. It is warmer on feet after showering and maintenance free in a moisture environment. Hand-made glass knobs accent the custom cabinets.
The choice of an organic eco-resin wall gives an added lightness and much needed privacy. The birch within the resin brings in the outdoors.
